BETHESDA, Maryland (LifeSiteNews) – Shortly after daybreak on the Memorial of St. Clare, August 11, Father Antonio Maria, C.F.R., celebrated a Mass for life in a shopping center parking lot adjacent to late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart’s facility in Bethesda, Maryland. Carhart is one of only a few abortionists in the U.S. who is willing to abort babies through all nine months of pregnancy – right up until birth. …
Note: Saint Clare of Assisi defeated armies who sought to seize Assisi and her convent by confronting them with Jesus Christ Almighty in the Blessed Sacrament.
Back to the LifeSiteNews article: This was the 11th Mass and first Eucharistic Procession near this abortion facility. The Masses have been offered by various priests. When Carhart was located in Germantown, before moving to Bethesda, a Mass was said each Saturday morning for several years in an office next door to his abortion center. Dick Retta, who leads a prayer vigil each Monday year-around in front of Carhart’s facility, said, “With prayer, witness, and persistent activity by the pro-life community, the abortionist left Germantown. Hopefully, he soon will leave Bethesda.”
In his homily, Father Antonio, a Franciscan Friar of the Renewal, spoke about the miracles of St. Clare, a disciple of St. Francis of Assisi, attributed to her devotion to the Holy Eucharist. …
At the end of Mass, Father Antonio led the two dozen attendees in a silent Eucharistic Procession around the property where the abortion facility is located. He then blessed the congregation and the abortion facility with the Eucharist. Click here to read the whole article.
As you can see, good Father Antonio Maria has a van equipped to say Mass where Jesus is most needed. Cathy Roth, longtime friend of WAKE UP’s foundress Missy Reilly Smith and WAKE UP’s treasurer Dick Retta, arranged the Mass and procession. She was there with Missy, Dick and the rest of the Catholics – and Missy took all the photos on this page.
Missy, Dick, Cathy and everyone there prayed to save babies and their parents from the horror of abortion and also for the sake of Dr. Carhart and his staff converting, repenting and choosing eternal life with Christ.
LeRoy Carhart has a grisly history of murdering babies and some of their mothers. Most disturbingly, he pretends to be a minister of God. Click here to read about it. Carhart was ousted from Germantown because Cathy arranged Masses there, she, Dick and others were vigilant prayer warriors, and, at last, a phenomenal Christian businessman bought the office building.
Saturday, October 10, 2020, we return to LeRoy Carhart’s Maryland office with Bishop Joseph Coffey, who will say Mass and lead a Eucharistic procession.
Carhart deceptively calls his place CARE and the address is:
10401 Old Georgetown Road, Suite 104
Bethesda, MD 20814
In addition to killing children, abortionist LeRoy Carhart brutally injured some of their mothers and they need help. Has he injured you or someone you love? Contact Missy Reilly Smith, join our email list, and stay tuned for details.
